Presented at the ALCTS CaMMS Cataloging & Classification Research Interest Group meeting, American Librarian Association (ALA) Annual Conference 2015, San Francisco, CA., June 28.
The Resource Description and Access (RDA) standard has been widely implemented in integrated library systems and its application with MARC has long been discussed, but its applicability in content and digital asset management systems and with non-MARC standards hasn't been much addressed. The national RDA non-MARC tests found that it is not easy to evaluate RDA "without an application available to aptly manage and display the data," however, to accommodate RDA in existing content and digital asset management systems still remains an issue. This presentation will address how RDA has been applied in cataloging and migrating digital materials in CONTENTdm and Islandora at the University of Central Florida Libraries. It will also look at using RDA with other cataloging and metadata standards such as Dublin Core (DC), Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) and Describing Archives: A Content Standard (DACS) to catalog digital materials including digitized serials and monographs.
